After ten successful years, now, the contest is on a much larger scale.?This year the contest will be held under a new format; Kolga – Tbilisi Photo Meeting.?Where the goal of the festival is to link international photography to Georgia and to local?photography.
Participants are free to choose the subject of their works, because we would like to attract?photographers of all different ages, and those working with various styles.?The contest is open to all photographers worldwide. There are no age restrictions.
All details about the contest you will find in the attached PDF.
It was a great pleasure to be in the jury of Kolga Photo Contest 2011.
We could feel an enthusiasm for photography in Tbilisi. Hundreds of visitors, mostly young people, came to the opening of the very good presentation of the winners. There was also a big interest in our lectures and portfolio reviews.
This year the exhibition of the Kolga Photo Contest will be part of the new “Kolga Tbilisi Photo Meeting” with an extensive program of exhibitions, workshops, portfolio reviews and lectures by international photographers. We will?soon?inform you about all details of this event.
Your contribution for the Kolga Tbilisi Photo Prize 2012 will offer you the opportunity to participate in a new and fresh photo festival in an amazing city.
